Painting Roof Shingles

Updated: Mar 26, 2020

Painting asphalt roof shingles are a common practice among homeowners attempting to extend the life of their roofs. Asphalt shingles contain petroleum and asphalt ingredients requiring proper ventillation. Painting shingles are not recommended unless the paint / coatings and methods are specific and approved by the manufacturer or licensed roofing contractor and/or could possibly void the warranty and not adhere to Florida Building codes ( R4402.10.17.1.) Trapped moisture can occur and damage the underlying building materials below if improperly coated. Additionally, the paint/coating can hide defects and possible existing damaged. Painted shingles are usually found on older and end of lifespan roofs. A buyer should always exercise caution when seeing painted roofs.
